Kal'ska' Soft Parts WIP
« on: Jan 16, 2015, 07:31 PM »
I figured it was about time I made a WIP for my soft parts.

What I plan to have in my kit:

Flight suit - purchased
Balaclava - purchased
Vest - ordered
Kama
Girth Belt - negotiating
Pouches - purchased
Boot Spats - ordered

I've also toyed with the idea of having some kind of bullet loops on my arms since the end product will be a sniper kit.  I plan to make the girth belt and kama myself, but I plan to buy the vest from Sidi Ren.  I bought four Mosin Nagant pouches from Amazon.

Sounds like you have a good plan. I recently made a leather band to go around my right arm that holds small silver cylinders. It was a quick fun build that adds a nice bit of detail.

The Mosen Nagant pouches are great. I bought a bunch off ebay.

Hmm, I like that idea.  Did you just cut slits into the leather to slip the tubes in?

**UPDATE**

News!  I've put my order in to Sidi for my vest.  Hopefully everything will quite literally come together at the same time.  It was kinda funny though, getting my measurements.  At the moment, I'm on the ship, out at sea, aaand without a cloth tape.  But I was not to be deterred!  With actual tape in hand, and my measuring tape on the counter, measured, remeasured, and re-remeasured.  I'm a little embarrassed at how big I let myself get in the belly.  So, to shame myself and some motivation to work out more, here are my belly and chest measurements respectively:  41" and 40".  Now, time to hit the gym!

I'll post a picture up of it tomorrow for you to see as long as that whole remembering thing doesn't get in the way.

Yeah, happens to me all the time.  For me, it lasts until I see someone in the p-way (halls for land lubbers) and get to talking for about a half hourish.

Oh!  I see now.  I like it, and will attempt to make one.  Is there a place in Norfolk that sells leather strips and rivets?  Like a Micheal's or a Hobby Lobby?

Best bet for all leather goods is Tandy Leather.  There's one in Henrico somewhere; I've been meaning to take a trip up there and get some things.  If you want, PM me and we can try to coordinate a day to head up that way.

Sounds like a plan!  It might be a while before I'm back in town, though.

No worries.  School and work mean it'll be a while for me, anyway. :P

New problem.  Ish.  I figured I needed boot spats, especially since I plan to use my Navy combat boots.  I found a tutorial online, but I don't think it's as good a tutorial as I need it to be.  Are there any tutorials out there (preferably not video, as I'm working off of Navy ship internet) that do an incredibly good job of describing what to do?  I'd like it to cover most of my boot, and I plan to blouse my flightsuit over the spat.
